When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be one I'd like to try. I made these as a thank-you for a friend, and the partial batch I made left just enough for us to enjoy some too :)
1 c butter
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 c oats
2 c chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugars together. Mix in vanilla and eggs.
Stir in flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda.
Add in oats and chocolate chips.
Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, and bake for 8 minutes or until done.
Comments from the cook: No, you weren't mistaken. The original recipe only calls for 2 types of chocolate. BUT, I have a container of Special Dark Hershey's Cocoa in my cupboard...so I used half regular cocoa and half special dark. And there you have it. 3 chocolates! And the result? Rich awesomeness. Mmmmmhmmmm.
Photography secret, just FYI... I usually only bake up a few cookies for eating right away, then refrigerate my leftover cookie dough (or freeze it in pre-shaped balls). For best results, I bake another batch the next day. Very cold or frozen dough generally results in cookies that spread less. This makes for thicker, fudgier cookies...of which I am a fan :) And they just happen to look better than the cookies from batch #1, too!
